Blind and Awning Covers by markilux

markilux awning covers – are highly rated because of their quality and appearance

With the purchase of a markilux awning cover you have chosen a high-class, quality product. All fab-rics are produced on state-of-the-art weaving looms. This guarantees near perfection in the manufactur-ing process. Meticulous checks also ensure that we only ever supply functionally flawless covers.

However, awning covers do not only serve as effective protection from the sun. They also have a decisive impact on the colour ambi-ence and hence the atmosphere under an awning. For even greater enjoyment of the colour ambience provided by the shade of an awn-ing, markilux offers an extensive collection of more than 250 fabrics made from the innovative, high-tech polyester yarns sunvas snc and sunsilk snc.

sunsilk snc and sunvas snc – the innovative awning fabrics with self-cleaning effect in

rain (a minimum awning pitch of 14° is required to ensure water drain-age). The high-quality, dirt-repelling coating makes sure you can enjoy the luminous colours in the fabric for many years. Tried, tested and certi fied with the test symbol "self-cleaning – inspired by nature" which

was awarded and confirmed by the internationally renowned Institute for Textile Technology and Process Engineering (ITV), Denkendorf.

The certificate "Öko Tex Standard 100" guarantees that no harmful dyes or

chemicals were used in the making of markilux awning covers (sunsilk snc / sunvas snc).

Effective protection against UV radiationDue to the increasing strength of UV radia-tion, healthcare during our leisure time is gain-

ing in importance. Therefore it is important to know just how many harmful UVA and UVB rays will pass through the cover when purchasing an awning. markilux fabrics in dark colours afford 100 per cent pro-tection. The lighter colours (right through to plain white) stop up to 97 per cent of UV radiation.

These figures are based on re-search conducted by the Hohen-stein Research Institute as well as the manufacturer of our fabric yarns.

All fabrics made of sunsilk snc and sunvas snc achieve the high-est possible solar protection factor for textiles (UPF 50+). The UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Fac-tor) specifies how much longer one can be exposed to sunlight when protected from it by the given UPF without suffering sunburn. Fabrics with an ultraviolet protection factor of 50+ would enable you to sit out safely in the sun fifty times longer than you would otherwise be able to do without suffering sunburn, if you were to rely solely on the pro-tection provided by your skin.

In order to determine the sun pro-tection factor required, you need to know what level of protection is provided by your own skin, as well as the length of time you wish to sit in the sun (your own protection time x sun protection factor = maxi-mum sunbathing time). In so doing it is essential to bear in mind that the sun protection (awning) fabric is only able to reduce the effect of direct sunlight and not that result-ing from reflected UV radiation (from water, for example).

Superior light and weather fastness valuesOur covers made from sunsilk snc and sunvas snc get the best values

(marks 7 to 8) when rating their lightfastness and weather resist-ance.

Bonded seams lend awning covers an improved appearanceThe ultrasonic bonding process lends the cover a vastly improved appearance. It has been tested for its durability. The high compres-sion bonding process offers many advantages: Under normal condi-tions the panel joints (formerly seams) are impermeable to light and water and resistant to changes in temperature. Thanks to its smoother surface, the fabric has a longer life-span. In addition bond-ing avoids the problem of prema-ture ageing of the thread as a result of UV radiation and weathering. Generally speaking we supply all our blinds and awnings with bond-ed covers. However, the perfotex range and fabrics supplied by third parties continue to be stitched for technical reasons. So, if you would prefer your awning cover to be produced with the conventional stitched finish, we kindly request you to state this clearly on your order. Both stitched and bonded

awning fabrics show inevitable dif-ferences in colour at the seams and panel joints due to the double layer of fabric - the fabric appears to be darker at this point.

All widths quoted are unworked fabric widths. Please consult the current sales manual or price list for the maximum awning / blind sizes available in the different fabric qualities.

sunsilk snc the brilliantly luminous technical materialBecause of their superior luminos-ity and brilliance the sunsilk materi-als can best be viewed against the light as in the illustrations shown.

sunvas snc the softly glowing textile materialThe illustrations show sunvas fabrics when lit from the front.

Your markilux dealer will make the whole markilux collection available to you. We recommend you assess the lighting effect created by awning fabrics both when backlit and when lit from the front. The actual fabric colours may differ slightly from those depicted. Printed is not woven.

For each cover pattern there is a matching braid colour. However, if you would prefer an alternative colour, please choose from the colour palette shown. The valance always has the same seam arrangement as the cover as they are both cut from one piece of material. The shape of the valance is symmetrical at both ends. Moreover, the crests and troughs in the valance are adjusted to correspond to the widths of the stripes in the pattern. We cannot guarantee that we can copy the pattern repeat exactly in valances supplied at a later date..

perfotex

perfotex

The special fabric for markilux conservatory awnings made from high-tech polyester material in proven sunsilk quality. An additional aluminium coating reflects heat even more effectively, even before it can enter the conservatory. This light and air-permeable fabric woven, using a special technique, is pleasantly transparent and reduces the possi-bility of water troughs forming, which would put extra strain on the cover. A high-grade SFC finish (Teflon) offers tried and tested protection from soiling and gives the fabric its water-repellent properties.

perfotex 33202 upper side of the fabric

perfotex 33202 underside of the fabric

Because of the way the fabric is made, one side has a higher concentration in aluminium pigmentation; during cover manufacture this side is made to face upwards / outwards in order to attain the maximum benefits in heat and light reflection. In the case of fabrics in a lighter colour and especially when seen against the light, it is unavoidable that the aluminium coating shines through and can be seen from the inside.

Good to know:

Covers using the special, stabilising production method, with seams every 60 cm, have proved their worth when fitted to markilux conservatory awnings, so covers for the markilux 8800 and 8850 are made as standard using this technique. perfotex covers for markilux vertical blinds and awnings are manufactured from fabric panels 120 cm in width and for technical reasons are only available in a stitched finish.

perfotex fabrics are finished with encapsulated aluminium pigmentation on both sides. Due to the special manufacturing technique different concentrations of this finish are found on the upper and underside of the fabrics. During cover manufacture this side is made to face upwards / outwards in order to attain the maximum benefits in heat and light reflection.

In the case of fabrics in a lighter colour and especially when seen against the light, it is unavoidable that the aluminium coating shines through and can be seen from the inside.

sunvas transolair

sunvas transolair is the innovative high-tech polyester fabric with special perforating technique and excellent technical characteristics. A number of selected fabrics from the sunvas classics range form the basis of the sunvas transolair fabrics in the same colour. The special perforating technique ensures excellent transparency as well as good light, air and wind permeability. The breathable nature of the material has further advantages in that it prevents the build-up of a layer of warm air under the material and reduces the risk of water troughs forming.

sunvas transolair is especially recommended for use in vertical blinds and conservatory awnings including those with tracfix technology and, of course, in the markilux shadeplus / drop valance. Also available as widely woven fabrics for the manufacture of seamless covers up to a drop of 250 cm.

sunsilk perla FR is a high-quality awning fabric based on the innovative, high-tech fabric sunsilk snc. This coated fabric is waterproof and highly flame retardant and should be used wherever fire safety regulations need to be observed and protection from rain or sun and a decorative effect is required. In daylight, the radiant colours pass through the white underside of the sunsilk perla FR fabric, which makes it possible to tailor the colour design of the interior space to the specific requirements of the customer but also ensures a bright, friendly atmosphere in the evening.

sunvas perla is a high-quality awning fabric based on the innovative, high-tech fabric sunvas snc with its outstanding technical characteristics. This material has a transparent coating.

The colour effect of the material is virtually unchanged in comparison with the uncoated version. sunvas perla is waterproof and impervious to the effects of the weather and the high-tech material offers optimum protection against both sunshine and inclement weather whilst offering exceptional protection from UV radiation as well (UPF 50+).

The vuscreen material used to create modern sun and glare protection covers for markilux vertical blinds and awnings is finely perforated and transparent to a limited degree. It protects against reflected light. The encapsulated particles of aluminium on the fibres of this easily-cared-for, high-tech polyester fabric ensure the room temperature remains pleasant by repelling heat energy. Also available as widely woven fabrics for the manufacture of seamless covers up to a drop of 252 cm.

Awning covers – Product characteristics and care

Awning covers are industrially manufactured textile products which serve both a functional and a decorative role. They are high-tech products that meet strict technical requirements. Each production cycle undergoes extensive laboratory tests. Criteria such as water impermeability, rigidity, dirt and water-repellent properties, resistance to tearing and tear propagation, colour fastness and numerous other characteristics are defined, assessed and guaranteed for each fabric type by the manufacturer.Although only first-class, quality controlled fabric is used in production, there are limits to the degree of perfection that can be achieved. Owners of awnings sometimes complain about certain phenomena found in the fabric which cannot be completely excluded, in spite of today‘s very high technical standards.

Creasescan appear during the cover making process and when the fabric has been folded. A dark line may become visible at the crease when viewed against the light, especially in the case of light colours. This is because the fibres become kinked when the fabric

is folded so changing the light transmitting qualities of the material (refraction).

Puckering of the fabric can appear along the side hems, next to the seams and in the centre of the panel. There is a double layer of fabric at the seams, which are stitched or bonded when flat. As the cover is wound onto the roller the two layers of fabric are forced to assume different diameters thus creating tension within the fabric. The tension exerted by the folding arms and the weight of the roller and/or front profile can exacerbate this effect. Puckering can also develop if a water trough forms during heavy rainfall.

Water impermeability / resistance to rainSolar protection fabrics are impregnated with a water-repellent finish and, if properly cared for and used at a pitch of at least 14° (to the horizontal), remain impervious to water during short, light rainfall. During prolonged and/or heavy rainfall the awning must not be extended or should be retracted to prevent any damage. If the cover has become wet, the awning must

be extended again at the earliest opportunity so that it can dry to prevent marking of the fabric.

Tension-induced stretching of the side hemsIn most cases an active tensioning system keeps the cover taut almost permanently. Although seams and hems provide reinforcement, they also have to withstand the most strain. When the cover is rolled up the seams and hems roll up on themselves, which increases the pressure and tension even more. They are therefore exposed to considerable tension and this can cause them to stretch slightly. As a consequence the side hems may sag slightly when the awning is extended. Source: ITRS (BKTex)

In the case of both stitched and bonded covers all seams are arranged symmetrically. This ensures that the awning runs smoothly and that it is aesthetically pleasing to the eye, as - in the case of striped fabrics - the pattern on both sides of the cover finishes evenly.

Caring properly for your blind or awning coverSo that you may have long and pleasurable use from your markilux awning cover here are a few tips regarding its care: Dust can best be removed when dry by means of a soft brush. Leaves or similar debris should be removed immediately. Small stains should be removed using lukewarm water and a commercially accepted, preferably liquid, detergent suitable for delicate fabrics (5% soap solution, water temperature max. 30°C). Rinse thoroughly with water. Comprehensive tips for the cleaning and care of exterior solar protection fabrics can be found in the guidelines laid down by the Industrial Association for Technical Textiles - Shutters - Solar Protection (ITRS e.V.)

Other important information relating to external solar protection fabricsSmall imperfections such as knots, uneven yarn thicknesses, the occasional broken yarn, waviness or uneven rolling up characteristics as well as signs of fabric stretch - especially in the region of hem or panel seam -

cannot always be avoided in spite of the state-of-the-art manufacturing processes used. Furthermore, traces of handling such as slight creases, which appear as lines in the fabric when held against the light, are also unavoidable. The intrinsic weight of the fabric may cause it to sag; this effect is exacerbated when the awning is wet. We guarantee that the above phenomena will neither have a detrimental effect on the service life of the fabric nor affect the functionality of the awning. In this regard we make reference to the guidelines laid down by the Industrial Association for Technical Textiles - Shutters - Solar Protection (ITRS e.V.).

Detailed instructions for the blind or awning owner, containing all important information with regard to their operation, care and maintenance, are included with every awning delivery. Source: ITRS (BKTex)
